Comments

  1. I am going to make this recipe. My salmon shows 4 ounces is 21 grams of protein, so 8 ounces would only be 42 grams of protein. For 6 servings that would only be 7 grams of protein per serving.

  2. I actually created this recipe over 9 years ago and haven’t shared it since. I just updated the Skinny Facts and WW points. I even changed the ranch dressing to my newer Best Skinny Ranch dressing, which has less calories and such. Here are the facts:
